Coach of the Nepali national football team Abdullah Almutairi has dedicated the victory against Chinese Taipei in the World Cup and Asian Cup qualifiers to the frontline health workers deployed to prevent the Corona Corona epidemic.

Nepal, which is in Group B of the second round of the Asian region, had defeated Chinese Taipei 2-0. Anjan Bista and substitute Navayug Shrestha scored for Nepal.

Speaking at a press conference after the game, coach Abdullah Almutairi dedicated the victory to the health workers working at the forefront. “This victory is for Nepali supporters. Nepal is in a very difficult situation. Especially for front row health workers. Our players also played well because they worked hard. ‘ After Nepal’s first victory as coach, Abdullah said.

Coach Almutairi said he was happy to represent Kuwait and Nepal.

After winning the second match against Chinese Taipei, Nepal has 6 points from 6 games and has strengthened its fourth position.

Due to Kovid-19, Nepal had to go to Kuwait to play three games at home. In the remaining matches, Nepal will play against Jordan on June 7 and Australia on June 8.

Coach Almutairi said that the game against Taipei was very important for Nepal and the victory was not easy. “Taipei played very well. The game was competitive. The victory was not easy. It was difficult, ‘he said,’ we had studied all their games. We were ready by doing 11 exercises in the morning before the game. We spent to understand their players. ‘

A similar coach said it was a start. “It simply came to our notice then. We have worked very hard. Our goal is still there, ‘he said.

He said that some changes have been made in the team to surprise the opposition. He said, ‘We wanted to give a surprise. They knew about Sunil Bal and Ashish Lama. So we played in the beginning. ‘

Manis Dangi made his debut and scored a goal in a friendly match against Iraq last Saturday. So he was expected to play against Taipei at the beginning but the coach played with strategy.

Abdullah made two changes to his first-choice friendly against Iraq. He replaced Sunil Bal with Manish Dangi and gave a chance to Ashish Lama in place of Navayug.

“Our strategy was to change the players in the second half. Manish and Navayug did the same, ‘he said.

When Almutairi included young players in the team this time, six players made it to the national team for the first time.

Defender Gautam Shrestha, who made his debut against Iraq with Manis, spent the entire time on the field against Taipei.
